ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Suppose, all other things being equal, the only difference between two candidates for a particular public office is that one believed all people of a particular religion should be killed. We could vote for that candidate and address that issue “down the road,” right? Wrong. Like columnist Ben S. Carson, I can be pragmatic, wise and savvy about all issues — with the exception of murder (“Charting a course between principle and pragmatism,” Web, May 20).

I am in favor of inclusion of varying ideas on subjects such as immigration reform, homosexual marriage and gun rights, but killing babies is not a “different idea.” Dr. Carson is correct that “[t]he soul of America is at stake, and the future of our children and their children is threatened … .” What of those babies who have no future?
